. cnn's susan candiotti made her way to boston, the flurries are flying. susan, i see you, hang on. i want to go first to alison kosik in new york. alison, we remember the disastrous situation you had, two winters ago in new york, the great big city essentially shut down. is that the type of scenario, alison, we're looking at here? is that the fear today, right now, in new york? >> reporter: people are talking about that. that monster storm of 2010, back in december. that was a biggie. that was when 20 inches fell in new york city. the big problem with that one, though, is new york city wasn't prepared for it. even the mayor back then said they didn't react as they should because they didn't get the plows out ahead of time, they didn't warn the public ahead of time. this is a very different story because, yeah, we are expecting to get anywhere from 8 to 14 inches, something to to sneeze at, but new york city is preparing. they have 250 tons of salt ready to go. hundreds of plows ready to go. they have got sanitation workers working around the clock. they are on this. they're on this m

. >> this video obtained exclusively by cnn shows dorner just 12 hours after the irvine killings, apparently placing a military belt, a helmet and ammunition behind an auto parts store in san diego. >> of course he knows what he's doing, we trained him. he was also a member of the armed forces. it is extremely worrisome and scary, especially to the police officers involved. >> hours after that press conference with southern california police on high alert, at 10:30 p.m., dorner slipped into this san diego marina, boarded a boat and surprised its owner. >> he pointed a handgun at the victim who was an 81-year-old male and demanded the boat. >> dorner told the man he wanted to flee to mexico. >> the suspect then attempted to start the boat. >> but a rope became caught in the boat's propeller, delaying dorner's escape. >> at that point the suspect became frustrated, took a few small items, including cell phone and some other miscellaneous items from inside the boat, tied the victim up and left in an unknown direction. >> he didn't harm the 81-year-old man, why? i think because he wasn't a cop.
